I'm sure all of you have seen the first ever photo of a black hole (well, the event horizon actually, but why nitpick) which according to an article
in sciencealert.com, astronomers have unofficially designated M87*. However they have also collaborated with a Hawaiian language professor who has
proposed a slightly more poetic sounding Hawaiian word as it's new name. That word is Powehi with its somewhat ominous sounding definition being,
"embellished dark source of unending creation". Personally, with a definition like that, I would think there'd have to be a very interesting story
behind the origin of that word.
Nonetheless, as for me I still prefer Holey McHoleface.
